Category LiveBookmarks Plugin

Already familiar with Firefox’s Live Bookmarks and WordPress RSS feeds?

The Monzilla website (and all subsequent sites) will also employ WP 2.0, or whichever version is the most current at the time of design. Read more »

Death to NoFollow

Perishable Press vehemently opposes The great corporate/commercial campaign to implement the rel=”nofollow” anchor. The proposal suggests that use of nofollow will reduce spam and improve search engine results. This couldn’t be further from the truth, regardless of what the commercial giant$ may tell you. Examine these helpful references and see for yourself: The NoNoFollow Group (404 link removed 2012/07/26) Prepare for more comment spam, not less (404 link removed 2014/03/13) Repenting of my nofollow sins Comprehensive Reference for WordPress NoNofollow/Dofollow Plugins Read more »
